HOK to design main stadium

HOK Sport,was picked Friday to design the main stadium.
They have designed dozens of major league baseball parks across the United States, and are part of the Team McAlpine Consortium picked to deliver the showpiece venue for the games.

The consortium built Arsenal soccer club's new 60,000-seat Emirates Stadium.

The Olympic Delivery Authority, which is responsible for the venues, said it received "a number" of other bids but McAlpine was the "only one that met all the prequalification criteria." ODA chief executive David Higgins said he hoped to complete negotiations with the consortium early next year.

The stadium is projected to cost between £300m and £400m.

The McAlpine group also delivered the main Olympic stadium for the 2000 Sydney Games. The group also includes international engineering firms Buro Happold and M-E Engineering Inc.
